Colorado Place is a 1.5 million square foot office, food court and sports club center. Designed and developed by Welton Becket Associates under the leadership of David O'Malley as President and CEO.

David successfully negotiated the Entitlements and Development Agreement with the City of Santa Monica. The anti-development attitude of the City and this project were featured on the 60 MINUTES television program in a segment called  "The Peoples Republic of Santa Monica". The final vote of the Santa Monica City Council was unanimously in support of the project.
